I bought an opal ring in Coober Pedy but it was too big so I had to get it resized. (Didn't have enough time in Coober Pedy to get it done there.) Tried getting this done in some of the bigger jewellers in Adelaide but was told that it was too risky - they might damage the opal because of how the opal was set, the design of the ring and because it needed to go down 6 sizes (😅). Steven had a look at it, said that there was a chance it might get damaged but that he could do it. And he did!! No damage at all!! I was also short in time as I was just passing through Adelaide really, but he got it done before I needed to leave, even though he was very busy! Very easy to talk to, straightforward and gets the job done! Highly recommend!! I've already recommended this shop to one of my friends who is thinking of getting an opal ring for her engagement ring! Thank you, Steven and Tim!

A free museum in the basement, beautiful opals and varied forms for all prices. As a student, I didn't think I would find an opal at such a good price for me. But that was not all, the staff was so helpful, honest and fiendly!

Add to this patient, because they even let me watch all their triplets and advised me for at least 20 minutes to make sure I picked only the best ones. One triplet was not meant to be in the package, I should have been more expensive, but they let me have it for the same price as the others!

I should have left a comment a long time ago to tell all of you about the great experience I lived at this shop. This remains as one of the best memories I have about my shopping in Australia.

My son loves coming into this shop whenever we're in town. It is a very unique shop and wouldn't be to many around like it. We like how you walk down the stairs to like a make believe dug out and there's samples of opal in the walls and things to look at. Staff are friendly and worth the look.

Went into the store and exhibited mine by accident and was very surprised at how knowwledgable and friendly the staff was there. Gave me a great introduction into the history and trade of opals and how they are manufactured. Didn't talk me into buying anything but I ended up with earrings I liked because I had the feeling the guys there knew their business well and weren't overpriced.
Go there and see for yourself!
